Federal officials drastically downsize 2015 Obamacare enrollment predictions
San Francisco Business Times

Just three days after Covered California predicted it would add 500,000 new Obamacare enrollees this enrollment period, the U.S. Health and Human Services Department has drastically downsized estimates for national growth on state and federal Affordable Care Act exchanges.

The new federal estimate is that between 9 million and 9.9 million Americans will sign up on Obamacare exchanges in the second open enrollment period, which begins Nov. 15. That’s a sharp drop from the 13 million individuals projected earlier by the Congressional Budget Office.
